KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT & CAPACITY BUILDING
India attaches great significance to knowledge creation and capacity building for climate change.
1. A network of 127 institutions called “INCCA” (Indian Network on Climate Change Assessment) has been set up to share knowledge and work in a collaborative manner on climate change issues.
2. The Department of Science & Technology has also initiated creation of Climate Change Centers at the state level especially in the Himalayan region. All the state governments have established links with local research institutions to ensure a continuous updating of their SAPCCs.
3. As a move towards competency based system, Government of India has also implemented National Training Policy, through which each Ministry and Department earmarks about 2.5% of its salary budget for training. A part of this budget is used for training in climate change and sustainable development issues as well.
4. Government has recently launched “Skill India” with the target to provide skill training in various sectors including sustainable development to about 400 million people by 2022.
